CLEVELAND – Hurricane Patricia is making its way to Mexico and is currently the strongest hurricane ever recorded.
Residents in Mexico are preparing for the possibility of its 200-mph winds and torrential rains.
But how will the hurricane impact Northeast Ohio?
We don’t need to panic much as there won’t be much strength left in the storm by the time it travels toward Ohio. The mountains in eastern Mexico will strip a lot of the wind away from the storm, leaving just the moisture behind.
The remains of Patricia will move inland and link up with a cold front impacting rainfall across the deep south and potentially the Ohio Valley, but not until next week.
The rainfall in Ohio won’t be anything substantial though, so residents here have no reason to worry.
